Marilynn Cedarstrom is starting her third year as an active, year-round volunteer with the Young Women’s Resource Center. She is very skilled in fundraising and planning, and we are so excited to have her as part of our team. 
"I truly believe in the YWRC and how they have been able to help young women and support them in achieving their goals."   
On view throughout July
29 works by local feminist artists and writers are now on view in the YWRC Women & Art Exhibit. Visual and written works creatively represent personal experience and acknowledge the varied struggles girls and women from different ethnic, cultural, economic and social backgrounds face.
The exhibition is open to the public at the YWRC during our normal business hours.
